GETTING HELP WITH SIZING
Sizing a hot water heater for your home, whether it is a tank or tankless model, isn’t just a simple estimation. Correct sizing means actually calculating specific factors to determine how much hot water your home really needs versus taking a guess. As you can imagine, guesswork can leave you without enough hot water for your home or with a hot water heater that is too big and uses too many resources (i.e., energy) to operate.
Your Embrich Plumbing Co expert will use a specific calculation that will determine how many gallons of hot water your property needs during something known as "peak hour" – the time or time of day when you use the most hot water. In residential properties, this is typically during weekday mornings. With commercial properties, peak hour can be at different times. Once our plumbing pro knows how much water is being used during peak hours, we can successfully size your new water heater for you.
WHEN IS IT TIME FOR HOT WATER HEATER REPAIR?
While different types of hot water heaters can develop repair issues specific to their type, there are some basic signs all property owners should stay aware of in regard to their water heater possibly needing repair:
- Tepid water/no hot water – this is the most obvious sign that you need an expert for repair. If you have a problem one time you may not need repair, but if multiple faucets are having problems giving you the hot water you need, it is time to call for help.
- White or gray pieces of plastic in your hot water (for tank water heaters only) – if you own a tank water heater and you have noticed white or gray pieces of plastic coming through your hot water, you likely have a broken dip tube on your hands. Our pros have seen this many times and can fix it.
- Strange sounds – this includes loud sounds. Hot water heaters are not noisy appliances, so if yours has suddenly become quite vociferous, it is time to have an expert check it out.
- Odors – just as your hot water heater shouldn’t be noisy, it shouldn’t emit any smells, either. This includes the infamous "rotten egg" smell that means you need a flush of your hot water’s tank.
